Texas TSA Nullification Update

Email Print

Back in March, I reported on several pieces of proposed legislation that would ban pornoscanners and hold TSA agents accountable for their sexual assaults in Texas.

The campaign took a big step forward last week as the pornoscanner bill made its way out of the Texas House Transportation Committee with a unanimous recommendation for passage by the committee members. This happened thanks to efforts by Norman Horn and other libertarian student activists who learned that the bill was about to die in committee and, with just 48 hours to save it, bombarded the relevant legislators (if I may employ an oxymoron) with phone calls and e-mails.

Concerned Citizen” and “Edmund Burke” at Stop Austin Scanners have more details on the overall effort’s progress.
